"I could write a whole book on my love affair with oysters. When oysters are present or on the menu you know there is something or someone to be celebrated like a birthday, anniversary or Christmas. It just wouldn’t feel like Christmas in Australia without some freshly shucked oysters accompanied by a mignonette sauce. I also added some pink caviar and fresh green chives to make these even more festive as we lead up to Christmas."
